Pregnancy Testing and Counseling

The Cooper Co. Public Health Center provides testing by appointment. Testing is most accurate if the test is performed approximately six weeks after the last menstrual cycle, otherwise known as being two weeks late. The most optimum urine specimen is one that has been obtained at the first morning urination upon wakening. The specimen should be in a clean container and kept in a cool place until the appointment. It is really important for the person being tested to know when their last menstrual cycle began. Test results will not be given over the phone. Appointments will only be made when the person wanting testing presents in person or over the phone. Friends, family members and partners may not make appointments, bring in specimens or obtain results without the presence of the consenting party. Friends, partners and parents may be present during the testing process only at the consent of the person being tested. That same person has the right to receive testing and results in private without any of the above present.
